Lost in the Wilderness

You are lost in the woods and you are afraid. You finally get your courage and find a way out of the woods.

Some of the leads are a lot like some of my other songs. The chords have been changed to protect the innocent! If you get that then you are as old as I am!

BiaB style = Orchestral 4/4 w/harp
Tempo = 45 BPM

Bass - Kontakt - Kirk Hunter - Virtuoso bass
Piano - Kontakt - Glass Gong
Guitar - Kontakt - Kirk Hunter - Virtuoso strings
Strings = Kontakt - Amadeus Full String Ensemble
Flute - Kontakt - Fairytale Flute
Solo Cello - Kontakt - Amadeus solo cello
Choir = EastWest - Symphonic Choir - full choir
Solo Violin - Kontakt - Kirk Hunter - Guarenrius violin romantic

I am playing the nylon string guitar and via my keyboard controller the flute, choir, solo cello, and the solo violin.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

I think I am as old as you cause all I want is "just the facts ma'am"....this is so peaceful...it doesn't strike me as "Lost in the Wilderness" but more like "Interceding Calm" or "The Dawning"...it is calming and relaxing to listen to...thanks Mario for a few moments of tranquility...there you go I would call it "Tranquility" or perhaps "Protecting the Innocent"...oh! oh! I know "Mind Your Own Business Dan"

Mario, this is why one cannot say "this is
the best one yet" because in your case almost happens every time, so I won't say that. Simply Fantastic!

Hi Mario ..,.

Really, really tranquil and mesmerizing. It sounds like it could a backing track for a scene from a Disney movie. besides the tranquility, the feelings I'm left with are innocence and peace.

Simply gorgeous. A tip of the hat for an excellent work.

Indeed, if I ever do get lost in the wild while hearing this, I think I will be in peace with it all ;-).

But this is really beautiful, Mario!

Seems I'm still young...no idea what you're referencing to grin

But, this is a wonderful instrumental song, perfect for meditation and to come down after a hard days work.
I like it. A lot!

THis reminds me of the calm that comes over one when they realize they are lost, and after the initial panic..... they sit down, gather their wits and formulate a plan.

As someone who trains to find the lost and the missing.... we actually teach young children to "Hug-A-Tree" if they ever get lost. It lets us find them so much faster. Hug a tree..... or in other words...stop moving around..... stay dry and stay hydrated and stay in one place.


This is a very peaceful song you have created. That last chime note is when the dog licks your face and you know you've been found.

Boy, another fantastic one Mario. If you've missed anything it could only be the title. It seems to be the consensus, me included, that if I were lost in this wilderness I wouldn't want to be found anytime soon ... I like it a lot!

Actually Dan you have come up with much better titles than mine.

Thanx for listening and commenting.

Thanx for noticing the nylon guitar. I'm still learning how to make MIDI instruments sound realistic so thanx for noticing that also. Much appreciated.

Thanx so much Herb.

We have always told our kids if you get lost in a store think Ts. Either go to the toilet or toys and stay there and we will come for you.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
